Let's say I want to post a direct link to an .mp3 file of an AUD performance on a different web site. Can I do this, legally speaking?

I've come across more than one music blog that links (usually with full acknowledgement) to material on the LMA. Given that all of the material on the LMA is there with full permission of the taper-friendly artists involved I can't see that there's a problem, as all you're basically doing is advertising the availability of the music. As long as you credit the musicians and the LMA as host site it should be ok.

Correct me if I'm wrong - the band's policy is that AUDs can be freely shared. Key word is free- if you stand to profit in any way from this distribution, then you are legally on the wrong side. As Tootmo suggests, this would be hosted at your own site, not the LMA.

No profit is involved, I am just pointing out a cool AUD.

Are you asking if LMA will have a problem that you have linked to another website from LMA's forum? If that's what you are asking, then I would think "not". That would seem to run counter to the LMA's mission as a repository, etc. Legally, I don't see a problem but then I don't do IP work.

The only reason I could see concern would be if there were some technical reason for not wanting links embedded in its pages, like, it opened a black slime portal or something.

Thanks for the reply. To clarify, what I am asking is, can I do this:

=====================================

Hi guys, my name is Zaorish, by the way here's a cool track:

=====================================

Is this cool?

I would say yes. I've seen people post to sites outside of LMA, e.g., "I Need More Shows" at xtranormal, etc. So, I don't think that creates a problem for you.

Besides, look how far the earth and heavens had to be moved before the mods would censure islam sux and he was a blatant provocateur.

While I am enjoying your Scarlet sample link as I write this, what you may find is that people, especially the paranoid (you know who you are (and WE DO TOO)), are skittish about clicking willy-nilly on links that leave LMA.

When your link finishes, I'm headed here:
http://www.archive.org/details/gd1972-10-21.set2-partial.sbd.miller.94409.sbeok.flac16

It's just a partial from Vanderbilt (their first and only show at the home of the SEC brainiacs.)

Enjoy,
TOOTMO

There is a little icon of two people & an arrow pointing to the right located on the upper right side of the set list/player that reads "share this recording" when you hover above it. I'd say that its there to facilitate sharing.
